Mike was a wonderful, caring, nurturing and loving man who always had a smile on his face and had great stories to tell. We shared many stories together about living in Panama. I will always have fond memories of our families sharing time together in Colorado, when our children were younger growing up together. I will keep Mike and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
    May time and love bring you peace,

  4. We first met Michael and his family when Aaron and David were at South Park Elementary School and I sat in on the reading group class sessions twice a week. Those were quite the days. Over the years,we observed Michael’s gracious helpfulness extended to his sister’s family in so many generous ways. He will be missed. May God’s comforting arms be felt at this time in your life and may His peace come to be known in the days ahead. Our prayers are with you.

  7. I want to send my condolences to the DelPriore family. I could not attend the service, but want you to know how much I thought of Mike and will remember him and your family in my prayers. I had the great pleasure of working with him at Parkview. God Bless You.

  8. Dear Mike’s Mom and Children,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I have known Mike for most of the 29 yrs. we have lived in Pueblo and know him to be a good, kind, gentle man. I lost my husband recently. He, like Mike, was loved and respected in the healthcare community. Shortly after I returned to work I attended a meeting in the Pharmacy at Parkview. Mike arrived late and it was so uncomfortable sitting across the table from him. Right after the mtg. Mike came around the table, wrapped me in his long,lanky arms and said “I’m so sorry, Chris.” He had tears in his eyes.
    Please forgive me for not attending Mike’s service. I find it too difficult to attend funerals at present. I found the online condolences very comforting. I hope you will as well.
    I know my husband Tom has greeted your son and father in heaven with open arms. My prayers of comfort, healing and eventual peace are with you all.
    Sincerely,
    Chris Reichert, Director
    Diabetes Care Center at Parkview

  9. My husband and I were both hired at Parkview by Mike. He was a wonderful, very caring, devoted, and respected man. His compassion for patients and understanding for his employees was truly admired. He will be forever missed and never forgotten in our hearts.

  10. With Deepest Smypathy to Aaron, David, Michaela and family. As you say goodbye to one so close to your heart, may love and healing flow into your world and bring you comfort and peace.

    Mike will always be remembered.
    So when tomorrow starts without him
    Do not think he is far apart.
    For every time you think of him,
    He is right there in your heart.

    Peace to your minds let your thoughts be still,

    Jeanie Flanagan
